I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and new year, filled with delicious food, but most importantly, family and friends.
When I walked the Susan G. Komen 3-Day 60 mile walk last October, I had no idea what kind of lasting impact it would have on me. That led me to walking a very difficult and challenging, hilly 60 miles this past October. I vowed that would be my last 60 mile, 3 Day walk. Somehow, I found myself registering to walk AGAIN in October 2018.
The weekend leaves such an impact, the aches, the pains, so many positive stories, and so many AMAZING SURVIVORS. Unfortunately, I also heard too many stories of loved ones lost because of this horrible disease. I do not want to hear about more women and men lost to breast cancer.
So once again, I am taking on this incredible challenge. On October 12th - October 14th, I'll be heading to Atlanta and walking 60 miles over the course of three days, camping out at night with thousands of other women and men taking this journey with me.
Please consider making a tax deductible donation, in any amount. If you can't afford to give as much as you'd like all at once, you can spread it out over four months using the payment plan option, if you donate online at The3Day.org.
I will be carrying ribbons of loved ones on my backpack. Not only those fighting or having lost their fight with breast cancer, but also all other forms of cancer. I have several names to add this year and if you have someone you would like for me to carry a ribbon for please send me their name and the form of cancer and I will add it to my backpack.
Click the BIG PINK DONATE NOW button on the top right of this page or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll send you a donation form. (Or you can call 800-996-3DAY and the nice people at the 3-Day can take your donation over the phone.)
This is very important to me, and that’s why I’m asking for your help. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
**if your company matches donations, it is very important that you designate “Susan G. Komen 3-Day®" as the recipient of the matching gift (with the recipient address of 55 East Jackson Blvd, Suite 1010, Chicago, IL 60604), NOT “Susan G. Komen®” generally or any Komen event or affiliate other than the Komen 3-Day event. (You may see a listing for the 3-Day with our old address of 820 W. Jackson Blvd., It is OK to select that option.)**
